In an Age of Technological Wonders

In a world mesmerized by technological advancements and the promise of interplanetary colonization, led by visionaries like Elon Musk, our collective imagination soars to new heights. The bold dream of Mars colonization symbolizes our relentless pursuit of survival and new realms. However, amidst these earthly endeavors, the Christian Leaders Institute (CLI) anchors its vision in a divine vocation that transcends earthly bounds and reaches for Heaven.

2024-2025: Two Years of Heavenly Focus

The Christian Leaders Institute will promote the theme: “Occupy Heaven – Multiply Hope.” This theme calls us to shift our focus from the red planet’s allure to Heaven’s eternal promise. It’s an invitation to embrace our true mission – spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ and extending the joy of salvation and heavenly citizenship to all.
